Aren’t you busy? Don’t you have a job? Isn’t your life too full for inanities?

I multitask so much that I have limited mental space. I forget unimportant things quickly to make room for new thoughts. I can’t afford to remember slights or keep grudges for my heart would be a dark place if I did.

I believe people should forget the good they do too. While expecting appreciation isn’t a bad thing, you must never have an attitude of doing anyone a favour. Serving is a privilege and blesses you too. God will remember your good works. The one who never forgets will reward you.
